You always kept me tryin 
I couldn't be enough 
So I became defiant 
I just wanted your love 
You'd put me down two times more 
Than you'd lift me up 
I didn't know what I was working for 
I just wanted your love
Knocked down doors and ransacked rooms 
Ladders climbed, who knows where to 
New York and LA to university 
Looking for the next thing I couldn't reach
No matter, no matter, no matter how much I achieve 
You've got me hanging here on your string 
I made it easy for you to do, I needed it to be 
I needed you halfway wanting me
Real love is too much 
It doesn't quite feel right 
I need just enough 
To keep me up at night
To make me doubt myself 
To make me wonder why 
You don't think I'm worthy 
I can't be your type 
Legs to be seen, a voice to be heard 
A force to be reckoned with, of that I'm sure 
Stages and fields and every kind of class 
Looking for the next thing I can't have
No matter, no matter, no matter what I do to be free 
I've got me hanging here on your string 
I put myself here I needed it to be 
I needed you halfway wanting me
You're just out of my reach 
And I'm just out of yours 
You couldn't touch me if you wanted to 
And you don't really want to 
No matter what I want- 
I might think there's more I need- 
I wouldn't have you if you wanted me 
I'm just out of reach
